First off, the book itself is a flimsy quality. While it is technically "hard cover", the pages aren't well suited for our 12 month old. We stick to board books and thought this would fit in the same category as the other Little Blue Trucks. I wish this were advertised as a regular book or had something in the description so parents knew it wasn't like the others.
Second, the story isn't as much fun. Sure counting trees is great, but we can count anything on the pages without the story simply revolving around counting. It kind of feels like the publishing company said "just get something Christmas related out there - it'll sell great". Doesn't have the same uniqueness and special touch that the others have.
Third - and this is a big reason for the 1 star - the twinkle lights are INSANELY bright. Hurt my eyes bright. I don't want my child to look at them bright. We ended up shelving the book instead of reading it, and I'm going to rip out the electronics before we reintroduce it next year.
TL;DR: I'm a fan of other little blue truck books, but this one really missed the mark.
Other reviewers listed problems with batteries; as I stated we haven't had any issues and we had read the book a lot and that doesn't count the number of times my son is just opening and closing the book to see the lights. But the batteries for the book are 3 LR1130/AG10 which is a pretty common battery in kids books that make noise, have lights, etc. I have purchased a big pack of these batteries from Amazon probably 6 months ago for a very inexpensive price because we probably have 5-6 books that use this same battery. Just a FYI for people that say that have battery issues and/or can't find the batteries, check Amazon.
1) the seller stuck their product sticker right smack on the front of the book cover with a sticker so sticky that it was about
impossible to get it off. I had to use goo-be-gone to get it off, so now my 1 year olds book has some chemical residue on it. Note to seller: try putting stickers somewhere that won't ruin the cover of a book, or use a sticker that will actually remove easily.
2) The story is actually really cute and the illustrations are great. The last page has lights on the truck that light up which is a cool touch. I'd highly recommend this story!
The story follows Blue as he picks up 5 Christmas trees, all different somehow, to our friends from the previous books. Kids learn to count up to 5 and also learn big and small and short and tall. Kids also learn the value of giving and sharing something special with a friend. In the end, Blue and Toad have a tree that "glows" when you open the last page. My son did attempt still to tear open the pages, but the book is durable enough that if it were a regular book I would have been to too late. This one has crumples, but it's still intact and that proves this is 2 year old proof!
